The line
real scalar k, max
should be removed from my last posting. It is unneeded.

Furthermore if the problem really is as stated in the subject line, you do not need to look at the i'th column of the matrix; the result of maxindex() alone is what you need. But if you want to know what i corresponds to the max of column j, the return as I have written it does that.
